I hope that Video-Cellar will comment on this.

Can you list some good pre-1953 Japanese movies that we should try to obtain?

One of my favorite Japanese films (not pre-1953) is the samurai move "Hara Kiri". Has anyone else seen it?

I would recommend anything by Yasujiro Ozu, he is a good Kurosawa precursor and is considered one of the great Japanese directors

It seems that I can get my hands on these without much trouble:

Record of a Tenement Gentleman (1947)
A Hen in the Wind (1948)
A Mother Should Be Loved (1934)

Are there pre-1953 Japanese monster and sf movies?
Does anyone have any pre-1953 Japanese cartoons?
It would be great to get some curios such as that.
